£2,285raised of £25,000 target by 27 supporters

Weʼre raising £25,000 to help Sharron to have the operations she needs and deserves to remove life threatening toxic mesh

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


As friends and industry colleagues (Lucy Swanston and Marian Stefani) we have set this fundraising page up on behalf of Sharron :

Sharron is one of thousands of women you have probably heard about in the media that has been mutilated and poisoned by toxic mesh. This has had, and will continue to have, a devastating effect on her life, physically, mentally and financially.

The mesh is made of polypropylene which is not inert and reported to be as toxic to the body as asbestos. It attacks the body's mucous membranes and triggers an array of debilitating autoimmune symptoms of which Sharron struggles with on a daily basis and is progressively getting worse.

Additionally, the mesh embeds itself into soft tissue, slicing through it like cheese wire causing immense pain in the rectum and vagina. Removal of the mesh is a complex, massive, life changing operation; she will lose some bowel and vaginal tissue and likely her womb, have a temporary ileostomy and need 6 months off work to recover.

Speed is of the essence to remove the mesh as Sharron is deteriorating on a daily basis. We are reaching out to friends both socially and within the Print Industry to support this wonderful lady and help her remove this poison out of her body with private care. There are only a handful of surgeons in the country able to remove mesh, so NHS lists are long.

The operation(s) come at an enormous cost so please do what you can and make a difference to her life to enable the treatment she needs and deserves.

Thank you.

**There is currently a Government pause on vaginally inserted mesh for stress urinary incontinence until a set of conditions to reduce the risk of injury are met. However, Rectopexy mesh (the operation that Sharron had to correct a prolapsed bowel) is not included in the pause. Campaigners at Sling The Mesh are working hard to have it included, with a view to all mesh being permanently banned.**
